Hastings fills vacant winters sports positions
Hastings High School and athletic director Trent Hanson announced Thursday morning that it has hired new head coaches for the girls' basketball, girls' hockey and wrestling teams. Scott Addyman is the new girls' basketball coach, Tim Duggan takes over the girls' hockey program and Tim Haneberg steps up to head Raider wrestling. It was a winter of unusual turnover for Raider winter sports as former wrestling head coach Josh McLay was required to step down as part of an agreement with the school district over alleged misappropriation of funds, girls' hockey head coach Josh Colvin chose to step down and girls' basketball coach Joe Lynch was not renewed by the district.
Addyman takes over as the girls' basketball head coach after spending the last three years teaching and coaching in Hastings. He has served as an assistant girls' golf coach, assistant boys' basketball coach and an assistant varsity/junior varsity girls' basketball coach. Prior to Hastings, Addyman coached and taught in Prescott, Wis., including being an assistant for the girls' basketball team and the head track and field coach. He is from Baldwin-Woodville, Wis., where he played basketball, track and golf.
Hastings also chose an in-house candidate for the wrestling team in Haneberg. Haneberg has been a teacher and assistant under McLay the past eight years. He is a Health and Human Performance educator and teaches the SPARQ, LIFT and Human Performance classes for Raider athletes and students. Haneberg attended Marist High School outside of Chicago and went on to wrestle at and graduate from Minnesota State University-Mankato.
Tim Duggan comes from Lakeville South to take over the Raiders girls' hockey program. He has over 45 years of experience playing, coaching and officiating hockey and over the last 22 years has been a part of six high school girls' hockey programs, the most recent being the Lakeville South Cougars. Duggan is went to St. Michael-Albertville High School and was a part of their first season of boy's hockey. He then served in the Marine Corp before starting his coaching career. He was named Section 3AA assistant coach of the year in 2016 and has officiated at the youth, high school and collegiate levels among others.
